New York (September 30, 2021) – With recent events highlighting the demand for greater risk management practices across all business sectors, RIMS, the risk management society® and The Amity University have entered into agreement to present a series of RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification (RIMS-CRMP) prep courses to the institution’s graduate and post-graduate network.  

Starting in late-October, Amity University will offer a comprehensive risk management learning experience for Banking, Insurance, Actuarial Sciences and Finance graduate students – as well as to its network of established business executives – that aligns with the RIMS-CRMP, the world’s only accredited risk management certification.

The five-weekend program will explore strategies to devise strong risk management capabilities, including:

  • Analyzing business models;
  • Designing organizational risk strategies;
  • Implementing risk processes:
  • Developing organizational risk competencies; and
  • Supporting decision-making.

Upon completing the programme and passing the RIMS-CRMP certification exam, participants will earn the coveted RIMS-CRMP Professional credential, apart from their individual degree from Amity University.

Addressing the participants, Prof. (Dr.) Balvinder Shukla, Vice Chancellor, Amity University welcomed this very special and exclusive education agreement between Amity University and RIMS and said this partnership will provide a great opportunity to faculty to network, build relationship with the professional world. “This is an era of networking, partnership and developing synergy to support industry and provide practical exposure to those who want to develop risk management competencies. Such certifications provide an advantage to students which enhances the chances of employability and expertise”, averred Dr. Shukla.

“To achieve our mission and advance the risk management profession globally it is crucially important that RIMS identifies partners who share our values and recognize the importance of delivering world-class risk management education,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth.  “As the Society’s membership continues to grow in India, we are proud to collaborate with Amity University and provide professional advantages to the region’s business community while also creating a path for executives to strengthen their organizations’ risk management capabilities and earn the coveted RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification.”

RIMS continues to invest in developing, promoting and advancing risk management in India.

The Society announced the formation of its RIMS India Chapter in December 2020 and will host its 4th Annual RIMS India Risk Forum, virtually, December 3 and 4, 2021.

“Joining forces with the highly-respected Amity University will allow RIMS to continue in its journey to demonstrate and promote the value of strong risk management capabilities in India,” said Gopal Krishnan, Director of Global Development for South Asia at RIMS. “We are excited to engage with Amity University’s impressive network and share this exceptional opportunity for their community to achieve the highest mark of achievement in the risk management profession.”
